The unwritten agreements : Teachers’ experiences of their psychological contract (English)
Abstract [sv]

Lärare vittnar om en tuff arbetsmiljö som påverkar både deras möjligheter att utföra sitt arbeteoch elevernas möjligheter till undervisning. De flesta lärare trivs med att undervisa men deras arbetsmiljö innebär en förhöjd risk för arbetsrelaterade besvär. Psykologiska kontrakt handlar om ömsesidiga skyldigheter och förväntningar mellan arbetsgivare och arbetstagare. Syftet var att undersöka lärares upplevelser av deras psykologiska kontrakt. Sju kvalitativa intervjuer med lärare från olika skolor genomfördes och analyserades med hjälp av en induktiv tematisk analys. Fyra teman framkom: Anställningsavtalet, Bristande resurser, Innehåll i de psykologiska kontrakten och Psykologiska kontraktsbrott. I studien framkom att en stor del av lärares arbete regleras i deras psykologiska kontrakt, att det är viktigt att förväntningar mellan lärare och deras arbetsgivare tydliggörs och att lärare får en ordentlig introduktionsprocess vid nyanställning. Resultatet går i linje med tidigare forskning och styrker vikten av att vårda lärares psykologiska kontrakt.

Abstract [en]

Teachers testify to a tough work environment that affects both their opportunities to do their jobs and students’ opportunities for learning. Most teachers enjoy teaching, but their work environment entails an increased risk of work-related problems. Psychological contracts are mutual obligations and expectations between employers and employees. The purpose was to examine teachers’ experiences of their psychological contract. Seven qualitative interviews with teachers from different schools were conducted and analyzed using an inductive thematic analysis. Four themes emerged: Contract of Employment, Lack of resources, Contents of the psychological contract and Psychological contract violations. The study showed that a large part of teachers' work is regulated in their psychological contracts, that it is important that to clarify expectations between teachers and their employers, and that teachers get a proper introduction process when hired. The results are in line with previous research and highlight the importance of nurturing teachers' psychological contracts.
